9780805008005: Everett Anderson's Goodbye (Reading Rainbow)

Everett Anderson's Goodbye is a touching portrait of a little boy who is trying to come to grips with his father's death. Lucille Clifton captures Everett's conflicting emotions as he confronts this painful reality. We see him struggle through many stages, from denial and anger to depression and, finally, acceptance. In this spare and moving poem, the last in this acclaimed series, Lucille Clifton brings Everett Anderson's life full circle.   Everett Anderson's Goodbye is the winner of the 1984 Coretta Scott King Author Award.
